One afternoon or evening, the spouses/friends of the polio survivors will have sharing time by themselves. There is usually free time available to "do" Branson. Groups may also decide to attend a show, or go eat at a certain restaurant. Last year everyone chipped in and chicken, salads, lunch meats, bread, cheese etc., and other munchies were brought to our "meeting room" so we didn't go out and eat all the time. Coffee and ice tea were always available in this room as well. Many attendees brought their craft items to share and sell.

Tommy Lynn writes:

Hi folks,

Our third Branson Internet Reunion will be held in Branson on June 8-11, 2001. We will again hold it at The Lawrence Welk Resort as they treated us so nice this past June. They are fully handicapped accessable but only have 6 Handicapped rooms per se. These are first come-first served.

We also have a Branson E Group and this is where we do all the planning, scheduling and such. It's also a very nice PPS support group, no flaming allowed ;-)

If you would like to join forces with the rest of us whackos, email me at tlcon@webound.com and I shall subscribe you.

Thanks for your interest and we sure want y'all to join us this coming June.

ADDITIONAL NOTES Warm Springs Reunion Brochures In Mail

WARM SPRINGS, Ga. - Over 500 Warm Springs Reunion brochures are already on their way to polio survivors all over the country. Others will be going out each and every day over the next month.

Detailing the April 11-14 return of Warm Springs Alumni from the FDR Era and early vaccine years of the 1930s, 40s, 50s and 60s, the brochures include objectives, the reunion schedule, housing information and a registration form. They are designed to initiate the much- anticipated process of bringing back this unique group in remembrance of a special time and place in all of their lives.

"Based on the interest we've had from polio groups and our polio survivors, we're anticipating at least 200 returnees and we're looking forward to a fun and informative reunion," Roosevelt Institute Conference and Continuing Education Director Carolyn Moreland stated recently. "Most of these folks haven't seen or talked to each other in 50 or 60 years and we want to make their reunion as memorable as possible."

During the height of the polio epidemic that gripped this nation during the first half of the 20th Century, Warm Springs was home to an average of 125 polio patients at the Warm Springs Foundation, a treatment center started by Franklin Delano Roosevelt (himself a polio victim) in 1927. They came from every state and other nations seeking help and recovery from the dreaded disease, and they included soldiers during the World War II years, many of whom contracted polio while fighting in the Pacific.

For every one patient there were at least four staffers, including therapists, nurses, technicians, doctors and possibly the most famous of all, "push boys," young, able-bodied men from the local area responsible for getting the patients to places they couldn't reach on their own. And like the former patients, many staffers of that time are expected.

The reunion is the brainchild of Dr. Anne Gawne, director of the post-polio syndrome program at the Roosevelt Institute. The reason for the early spring timing is so that it might be held in conjunction with the annual observance of FDR's death in Warm Springs on April 12, 1945. Georgia Governor Roy Barnes is tentatively scheduled to speak at this year's ceremony at The Little White House.

In addition, Anna Eleanor Roosevelt, granddaughter of the former, four-term president, will kick things off at a reception at the Historic Therapy Pools, which are now part of The Little White House State Historic Site.

For more information on the Warm Springs Reunion, alumni should call 706/655-5231. Information is also available on the Roosevelt Warm Springs Institute for Rehabilitation website at www.rooseveltrehab.org.

IMPORTANT! CONFERENCE TO GO AHEAD! In the last days of 1999 we heard that Paraquad Victoria (Polio Network Victoria) had withdrawn their support/sponsership of the conference. Under the name of Polio Australasia, Post-Polio Network (NSW) Inc and a number of other Australian Polio networks have managed to salvage the Conference, minus the overseas speakers. Dates, times and venue unchanged. The program has been revamped to turn some workshop sessions into plenary sessions to replace the 3 keynote speakers.
